What to Do After a Commercial Fire

When a fire hits your office, the damages can be devastating and costly for a business owner. Even after the fire is put out, the work of rebuilding and restoring things back to normal can seem daunting. To avoid being overwhelmed in the wake of a tragedy, you need to be prepared.

After a fire is extinguished, the cleanup and restoration efforts begin. To do this, here are some steps you can follow:

Contact your insurance provider – Repairing and restoring your place of business can be very expensive and not having the right type of insurance to cover the damages means paying out of your own pocket. If you are insured, you simply need to call your provider and verify that the damages you incurred are covered under your policy. Once that is confirmed, have the damages assessed and file your claim. This will ensure that you get the financial assistance you need to get things repaired, restored, and replaced.

Survey what needs to be repaired and restored – As difficult as it may be to check out which parts of your business can be repaired and which parts have to be rebuilt, it is something you need to do. Once it is considered safe for you to do this, be objective and make a list of things to do to get your business back on track. Make a list of the items that can be restored, furniture that can be repaired, and equipment that can be remediated from the rubble.
